Science Fiction meets John Keats

In the spring, CC202 students will get a taste of John Keats’s work. The Core offers an entrée: Dan Simmons’ Hyperion, published in 1989, is named after Keats’s unfinished epic and incorporates many of its themes.

Students are encouraged to read this thrilling twist.

Hyperion is a powerful word that translates well in Science fiction as well as other genera. Shakespeare uses it to compare his father to his uncle “Like this; hyperion unto the Sayter.”
